Russian Music Site Down, Sister Site Up

July 4, 2007

“A music download site that was the poster child for U.S. anti-piracy crusaders and an obstacle to Russia’s bid to join the World Trade Organization has been shut down by Russian authorities, according to the U.S. government.The victory, however, was short lived: The same company behind has launched a similar site that resembles the shuttered service, provides the same legal disclaimers and sells songs at a fraction of the price of iTunes.

Moscow prosecutors declined to comment on whether had been shut down, leaving it unclear if the government was behind the site’s disappearance.”
